Mushroom Prawn Bhuna

Known as “prawns” in UK and as “shrimps” in North America - together with mushrooms they make a great combination when cooked in the “bhuna” style - which is a “dry” and fiery hot dish - served up on a bed of basmati rice and garnished with freshly-chopped ripe tomato.

Well, I tried this recipe the other night. I just have to laugh at myself because it was a disaster :). I don’t know exactly what I did wrong other than using the wrong size shrimp. I think it was cumulative; to many little mistakes along the way.

So I have been taken down a peg or two! Perhaps the next recipe I try will be a simpler one. Thanks again

Hi again Maisha - I’m sorry it didn’t work out - but never mind - when my mom used to teach me - I used to make a complete has of things several times per dish - so I’m not sure you ought to take yourself down a peg or two! If anything - I think you’re doing just great. Actually - there’s one bit of advice that I could offer when doing “bhuna” type dishes - and that is to use a non-stick pan. Indeed - I use non-stick pans for everything - but since bhuna dishes involve a lot of “dry fry” it helps to stir constantly on a non-stick base so that things don’e end up burned.
